Which Broadway Musical Does Skating Star Johnny Weir Have His Eye On?
Johnny Weir
Johnny Weir would love to show his 'True Colors' on Broadway.

You’ve seen Johnny Weir showing off his balletic form as a champion figure skater, starring in his own reality series (Be Good Johnny Weir) and judging the short-lived Skating With the Stars. Now this fascinating athlete-turned-performer has his eye on a new endeavor: a role in a Broadway musical.

“I would have so much fun on Broadway,” Weir said before a recent performance of Seminar, starring his pal Jerry O’Connell. “I love to sing and dance, I love to be a spectacle, and I think Broadway is just the place for that.”

So, could Weir picture himself in any particular Broadway show? “Absolutely! Priscilla [Queen of the Desert]. I mean, hello!” Hello, indeed: While chatting with Broadway.com, Weir was perfectly turned out in a fur wrap, black wedge heels and a pricey Hermes Birkin bag.

The star admitted that he could use a crash course in theater before making his stage debut: “I’m not a good gay; I’m not up on the Broadway news, but I do support Broadway,” Weir said with a laugh. “It’s amazing what these performers can do.”
